Since I just posted about running it is only fitting that today's Flashback Friday is the...
Wine Country Half Marathon. Mother's Day Weekend, 2010
The race takes place in the Santa Ynez Valley. The pre-race and finish line festivities take place in Solvang. Which is where the movie Sideways was filmed.
We had quite a group for this race: Amy, Eamon, Kari, Josh and me.
And let's not forget Drew, our domestique. (Nod to the Tour de France)
Pre-race - Look how shiny I am! Safety first!
Look, Mandi was there too!
I would totally recommend this race. The course is beautiful but challenging. There is one corkscrew hill that is a beast. I remember thinking "how can those people be so high, they aren't that far from me". I soon found out. As we approached, I turned to Josh and said, "don't talk to me until we are at the top".
All in all, one of my favorite runs and a great way to send Mother's Day.
